    White 1 is scary. I just touched a white 1 up and it was almost too easy!

    I got a suji during the sale and it arrived yesterday. I feel similarly to what marko and salty said. But I have a bit of a issue with the finishing, mine is likely a bit worse than theirs, and I understand Murray is focusing on making functional tools. But... on a price comparison point there are somethings that should be more highly finished

    I was looking for a suji during the sale, but didn't see one.
    Enjoy!

    See how long that edge will hold. Then compare it with 52100 in terms of sharpness and edge retention.

    This is a bit off topic, but how does O1 compare to white 1 and 52100 (which I need to get my hands on, soon)?

    I just got my Carter funayuki in a couple of days ago (205mm). Father's Day gift to myself. Today was the first day I had a chance to use it, and it has sort of thrown me a bit. Not only is is shorter, but the handle is so light. Outside of paring knives it is easily my lightest blade (119g). I can't wait to get my Stefan handle on it and balance it out a bit more to my liking. I do like the Hiro-like toothy patina against the laminate though. All it took was one lemon, some capers and a red onion and the patina came in no problem.
